Looking back on the past month – it has been a month of amazing creativity, learning, and inspiration, and best to pick apart one day at a time.
Leaving my cousins in Takoma Park, March 22nd, 2015, 12:30 – rerouting on the Washington D.C Transit system (WMTA) Yellow line since the Yellow line was being “maintenanced”, I rerouted from the Red – not to Gallery Place but to Metro Center inseatd, China Town area, then hopping on the Yellow line to Reagan, knowing now it is 2:35, my flight leaves at 4:00 PM, boarding at 3:30 – arriving at the airport in the middle of the day, like this, – Reagan International – not bad, in the First Class line (yeah!) approaching security and about 35 people in front of me, and it took roughly 30 minutes to get to security, get through, and I checked two bags (one 45 pounds, the other 35) – for free (yeah again!). If you think I am NOT using this info for next trip, um, you’re naive – I think as others have said First Class and Business Class might be a regular thing 🙂 – I have no idea how it happened, just that I booked for regular coach seating and boom, First Class, so seemingly it was a birthday present from the gods.
However, looking back – a great sunny day in Takoma Park, Maryland, I like leaving in the afternoon to allow some morning chores, morning tasks to be done, some slow-and-get-it done-type movements, and allowing some sleep in time – much better then cracking up at 4:00 to 5:00 AM and cracking out repacking, resorting, reorganizing, on time of a hundred other things:) There dis this calming that I always feel at my cousins, their easy-going, and relaxes style mass pretty much makes all the difference in the world.
Looking back, in the next few posts you will see the accomplishments of an organized, focused, talented young group such as Repentino. that fueled the ability to represent their school in Mexico City – to the highest degree – as well as meeting some extraordinary students and faculty from around the world, to local business owners, as well as employees that truly change the world in various ways, a birthday that was to be honest, one that might be the best so far. Add to that friends, family that have created an inspiration for me around the world – be it at University of Delaware, the amazing experiences I was lucky enough to have at Seaford High School, as well as the amazing amazing students I found myself among students during a Week Without Walls trip from The American School Foundation A.C. in Mexico City – the past 45 days really, have been impossible to comprehend and appreciate in even this short amount of time, but it is worth the effort 🙂
